This review examines the evidence for adopting IgA anti-tissue TGA as the first-line diagnostic test for CD and recommends a laboratory algorithm for the use and interpretation of TGA to enable the clinical laboratory to play a full part in detecting and monitoring a disorder that is eminently treatable once the diagnosis has been considered and confirmed.
